Question RAC, WW1 or WW2....

I have a RAC cap badge described and bought as WW1, but I have my doubts.
This badge is white metal, circular, clenched glove with RAC cast on.
The outer circle is slightly shorter than the inner one, both with arrow heads on the ends ( 4 in all). The inner circle arrow heads are attached to a Kings Crown at the top of the badge. Fixing loops to rear.

Please can anyone help with identification.
I have seen similar cap badges on ebay described as both WW1 & WW2.

The mailed fist design dates from 1941.

There are no WW 1 RAC badges as they weren't raised until 1939.
